    Abstract

    Effective feedback has been singularly highlighted as a significant, powerful tool for reinforcing student learning. Indeed, even highly motivated and academically geared medical students are no exception and expect regular feedback during various stages of their learning, including the basic medical/pre-clinical sciences. In this paper, we describe the use of technology enhancements and multimedia support to incorporate formative feedback on a regular basis for large student cohorts (up to 130 students) during and after practical learning such as that required in studying human anatomy.
